OAKLAND -- For starters, Raiders coach Dennis Allen would be hard-pressed to come up with a better three-point plan for success.

With all three phases contributing to the first game-opening touchdown by the offense in more than a year, the Raiders made an immediate statement Sunday and spent the rest of the day keeping the game under control in a 19-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars before a crowd of 49,400 at O.co Coliseum.

In a national sense, the game was being viewed as a potential battle for the No. 1 overall draft pick, given the fortunes of the two franchises in recent years.

When it was over, only one team on the field looked as if it would be called to the podium for the first pick, and it wasn't the Raiders, who outgained Jacksonville 340-248 in their home opener.

Free safety Charles Woodson, who had the game's most spectacular play when he hurdled a Jacksonville blocker to prevent a potential touchdown by Maurice Jones-Drew, already was looking forward to an AFC West showdown with the Denver Broncos on "Monday Night Football" in Week 3.

"It's one win. There's bigger fish out there," Woodson said. "It looks like Denver put up a lot of points again, so we've got to get over this one."

Running back Darren McFadden keyed a 226-yard rushing effort with 129 yards on 19 carries, Marcel Reece scored on an 11-yard run, and Sebastian Janikowski kicked field goals from 46, 30, 29 and 29 yards as the Raiders evened their record at 1-1.

Jacksonville, its quick-tempo offense shut down by a sharp-tackling Oakland defense, managed only a 27-yard field goal by Josh Scobee in the second quarter and a cosmetic 13-yard touchdown pass from Chad Henne to Chad Harbor with 2:53 remaining.

The Raiders got the crowd into the game from the outset, winning the toss and electing to defer to Jacksonville.

Jacksonville was immediately forced to punt after a three-and-out, and Phillip Adams returned it 30 yards down the left sideline to the Jaguars' 38-yard line.

Set up with a short field, the Raiders turned it into points on Reece's 11-yard run. It was the first time the Raiders had scored on their opening offensive possession since the 2011 regular-season finale.

"I thought that was huge," Allen said. "I think our defense stepping up, getting a three-and-out, getting the big punt return, then scoring was a big momentum builder, a big confidence-builder."

The offense never made it back into the end zone, with Janikowski getting five field goal attempts -- he missed from 35 yards -- and making four of them.

McFadden's big day was supported by 50 yards on nine carries from quarterback Terrelle Pryor and 32 yards on four carries by Rashad Jennings. The Raiders gained 163 yards rushing on six explosive runs ranging from 24 to 30 yards -- four by McFadden and one each from Pryor and Jennings.

Having watched Pryor run for 112 yards on 13 carries in Week 1, the Jaguars defense might have overcompensated and paid for it.

"Guys were over-shifting big-time on me," Pryor said.

Pryor completed 15 of 24 passes for 126 yards, seldom looking downfield with the Raiders content to take field goals with their defense in control.

"I feel like I did my job with the plays that were called in," Pryor said. "I did my job and we got a W. We got out healthy, and we have a big opponent coming up, so our mind is on that now."

Henne completed 25 of 38 passes for 241 yards and the one touchdown, but Jacksonville averaged only 1.8 yards per carry against the Oakland defense. Former De La Salle High star Maurice Jones-Drew had just 27 yards on 10 carries before leaving with an ankle injury.

Coach Gus Bradley said Jones-Drew sustained a sprain and X-rays were negative. He will be evaluated Monday.
